With spectacular views of the Currituck Sound, this spacious home was created to provide plenty of room for relaxation and sunning on the wide sound-front decks and a patio surrounding the pool. Entering the home, you will be struck by the rich wood paneling and hardwood floors, a reflection of its Craftsman architectural elements that are throughout every room’s furnishings including the beautiful stained glass window transoms. The mid-level has two King Master Suites; one with deck access and the other has access to a private porch with table and chairs. This porch is also shared with a third bedroom, the Queen Master Suite. The Game Room is also located on this floor with French doors leading out to the deck overlooking the pool patio. A wet bar with under counter fridge, wide screen TV, pool table and a half bath complete this room as a family “hang-out” spot. Access the top floor by the wide stairway, or by elevator if preferred, to find the Great Room with plenty of seating for guests, a wide screen TV, a gas fireplace (seasonally available Oct. 15th-May 15th) and floor-to-ceiling outdoor views with deck access. A powder room is located at the top of the stairs. A third King Master is on this floor also has access to the top deck which spans the entire western side of the house; this Master bath has a jetted tub. The large kitchen is outfitted with the latest appliances. It is suitable for multiple family members to make a meal together or for a chef-for hire, if you plan to have a professional give everyone a vacation from the kitchen during your stay. The deep mahogany tones of the tongue and groove paneling conceal the two dishwashers and restaurant grade refrigerator. A wine cooler, double wall oven and the 5-burner gas cooktop located on the center kitchen island with bar seating for 3. The dining room has seating for 12 and will make any meal seem grand, watching the spectacular sunsets over the Currituck Sound. Off the kitchen, a breakfast room, seating for 8, is perfect for small meals or for kids to play board games. A screened in porch off this room has seating for 6 with a doorway to the outside deck. Two more bedrooms complete the top floor, a Double Bunk Room Master (sleeps 4) and a Pyramid Bunk Master (sleeps 3). The Tower Room is one more level up and can serve as small office space with desk and chairs. The outside deck off the Tower Room has broad views to the north, south and west to give a full view of the surrounding landscape. On the patio area, a large private pool (pool heat available for a fee), hot tub and gas grill sheltered by a pergola is available for all to enjoy the outdoors. Golfers in the family will enjoy special privileges at The Currituck Club’s championship golf course, designed by Rees Jones, including advanced tee times and reduced green fees.
Lovely home. Enjoyed our stay. Several minor issues / suggestions:
1) Large wasps (and their nests) need to be exterminated from eaves of the house (in the back where the decks are, particularly on the third floor. Made it difficult to use the 3rd floor deck, and several got in the house and had to be dispatched (at risk of being attacked.)
2) Steps from the front hall up to the second level were not very clean.
3) Requiring guests who are paying as you are asking should not be asked to vacuum the floors, particularly of a house as big as Sound and the Fury. If an elderly guest has a heart attack vacuuming, is there a liability issue?
4) Wi-Fi password should have been included in the welcome basket by the front door. I had to contact the office for it.
5) For convenience of your guests, I would include a few large trash bags and starter toilet paper.
We rented this house for a family vacation. We wanted to make sure that everyone had their own space, and this house enabled us to have that. There was a problem with the garbage disposal and one of the dishwashers, but Paramount Destinations was there within 24 hours and had the issues taken care of. The sun does blast thru the back windows in the evening and can make it quite unbearable in the living and dining area, but other than that, the house was everything that we wanted.
Paramount has had the easiest and most efficient check in/out procedure of all the OBX rental companies I've used in the past 15 years. The smartphone app is a great tool for all-things-rental-related, though it could be slightly more intuitive. Overall, the Paramount Destinations experience was great. The house, The Sound and The Fury, is absolutely beautiful! Decorated very tastefully, and outfitted nicely, we had no needs that weren't already accommodated. The house is an A++ for luxury and comfort! I plan to bring my family back to this venue!Finally, a thank you to the owner, who offers a military discount. The gesture allowed us to stay here when we otherwise would not have been able to. It's a rarely seen offer, and I wanted to express just how much it means to me. Thank you.
